Vintage Christmas Card

Hello everyone,

I made this card for a very dear friend. I hope that she will like it.

Here is my card:



I made this card using a free printable paper from Far Far Hill, love that website, it has so many great designs. I distressed the edges of the paper heavily, since I wanted to create quite a shabby card. :)
I used white embroidered ribbon to create that ruffle strip on the side and some white gauze underneath the oval and flowers to add extra vintage look.


The young lady image is by Janets Printables, however I chose to print it in grey scale instead of color. The image was printed on super heavy cardstock. I used a Spellbinders die cut to create this oval.
All the flowers were hand made by me and then coated with sparkle spray.


The sentiment was created on my PC using 1942 Report font.


Couple more views from each side.
I am entering this card into following challenges:
House of Cards November Challenge: Sketch


The Shabby Tea Room Week #239 Just Neutrals


and

Deep Ocean Challenge Blog "Handmade Flowers"

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by...
